This program has allowed me to work full-time

It was a great opportunity to network
"I felt the MCAA program was extremely beneficial. It was a great opportunity to network with and get to know other coaches and see the learned principles applied through different sports at both the high school and college levels. It was also very interesting to get a variety of thoughts from different people on different issues facing coaches today. The Legal Aspects class was one of the most helpful classes I have ever taken! I would recommend the MCAA program to any coach considering a Master's degree."

The material covered in the courses of study is directly applicable to real life situations
I am writing this letter to thank you and your entire MCAA staff for providing the Masters in Coaching and Athletic Administration (MCAA) program to those desiring to continue their education in this area and improve their ability to relate positively to today’s modern athlete. I thoroughly enjoyed the curriculum and gained great insight as to how better to reach athletes and assist them in achieving their full potential on and off the field of play. The program requires one to become very introspective with regards to one’s coaching processes and continually reevaluate and revise the methods used in developing young people for competition on the field and in life. The material covered in the courses of study is directly applicable to real life situations and can be used immediately to improve oneself as a coach and a person.
The MCAA staff is second to none and I would recommend that anyone looking to improve their coaching acumen and athlete/coach relationships to enroll and pursue the program at Concordia University. Every one I dealt with from advisors to online assistance personnel was knowledgeable and helpful in guiding me through the program. The online aspect of the program, though challenging at times, is very user friendly and provides no excuses for not being successful in the program.
In the future, if I can ever be of service to you or your staff feel please free to contact me. I am proud to be an Eagle for life and look forward to impacting the lives of those that I coach and mentor in a more positive and confident manner due to the knowledge gained from the MCAA program."
